Just use the mail command. (the man page for mail is smaller)
Why don't you just use your favorite mua to send it? What about
using something like icq, ymessenger, etc?
As far as the RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR in the background... I sleep
well with it (in fact, if the three boxes in my room were to stop
RRRRRRRRRRRing I would most likely wake up). :)

I trust the Puff my LAN to keep.
Crackers come as whackers may,
But I'll have logs to make them pay."
